Skip to comments.In the spirit of Debate time, THE NOD -Bush/Gore Dingle-Norwood
Posted on 09/30/2004 12:53:43 PM PDT by PureSolace
Perhaps THE turning point in the campaign came at the 9 minute and 45 second mark of Debate Number 3. In what I believe was a calculated attempt to intimidate Bush, Gore walks up to Bush, sticks his hand in his pocket, gets even closer... Bush is in the middle of giving a good response on HMOs, sees Gore, nods, and then ignores him and proceeds with his statement. The audience laughs.
IT DIDN'T WORK! Gore knew it. Look at his reaction as he realizes that Naomi Wolf's latest "Alpha Male" ploy didn't work, as he was looking straight into the eye of a REAL Alpha Male... one who doesn't need to be coached on how to be a man. All he could muster was a "What about the Dingell-Norwood Bill?" What about it, Algore? I think this may be THE defining moment of the campaign where for the first time in 8 years, a Republican didn't back down in the face of Clinton-Gore bullying. Oh my, how sweet it is....
To save you a lot of time, this precious moment is at the 9 minute and 45 second mark of the debate. Just click on the link, and tune your Real Player to the 9:45 mark... Enjoy. Play it over and over. Hopefully a Freeper smarter than I can edit this clip and turn it into a loop...
I think this link is now dead... If anyone has it archived or images from teh debate, please post. thanks! :)

The ole "How ya doin" look.
My favorite part of the three debates--just knocked Gore out! It was like "yeah, I see you, but you are like a fly to be flicked off my shoulder"
I would love to see this. The link doesn't seem to work.
That nod by Bush was absolutely the most priceless moment in any debate I've ever seen.
And when the audience laughed, I thought maybe I'd never stop laughing right along with them.
It was at that moment I realized there was a darned good reason Tipper was so interested in mental health issues.
Gore reminds me of a guy waiter I used to know who worked at a downtown Chicago restaurant.
Priceless moment. I thought at the time, what is this dumb@ss trying to prove as he edged closer and closer to Bush who was in the middle of his answer.
Excuse me "Gay" waiter, not "guy" waiter
The RNC could do a fund-raiser by putting that on tape. I'd buy it. LOL
Link not working
I'd thought everybody had forgotten that. THE highlight of 20th century presidential debate.
Scroll down to Debate No. 3 and fast forward to the 10 minute mark.
"rtsb is not a registered protocol" is what it keeps saying when I click on the 2000 debate videos. I really would love to see the Look again.
Oh, what a great moment! The Gore-illa goes ape!
Ahhh, Charlie Norwood is my Rep, and I love it!
Gore is such a pansy. I had forgotten how much of a pantywaist he is.
You have to adjust your settings in Real Player to play the video.
Oh man, that is so precious. Bush made Gore look like the total dork he is.
I remember that thing Gore did. My wife, who is much smarter than I, said he was trying to intimidate Bush. Macho Gore was an oxymoron. I thought it was a bit of comic relief.
in most cases, the two are interchangeable.....
